SENSITIVE SCIENCE

SENSITIVE SCIENCE | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it

Bush imagines a more colorful future and dynamic new form factors. Putting anything on your body is an expression of who you are, and how you feel. Glasses started out as a purely medical device, but are now a style object – even for those who don’t need them. "We wear objects as adornment, to feel good," says Bush. Why not look at a neck brace or a walking stick in the same way?

petabush's insight:

Well this article is about me!

 

I'm looking forward to designing the new work for my PhD.

Seeking the iPhone of Wearables | EE Times

Seeking the iPhone of Wearables | EE Times | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it
It's time to think different in mobile, but we may need some new enabling technologies-energy harvesting where are you?

 

"There's a palpable energy around wearables, but the ideas are all wrong. The hubbub at the Glazed conference this week was exciting, but the products were clunky."


"I saw a two or three new-to-me smart watches, but they were like smartphones strapped to your wrist. They showed Twitter feeds and Facebook updates and captured HD video. Those are smartphone apps, not wearable apps. Think different, people!"

 


petabush's insight:

thank you for writing something that I agree with aobut wearables!

Smartphone asthma device launched

Smartphone asthma device launched | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it

Medical technology firm iSonea has launched a device to help asthma sufferers monitor their condition with a smartphone.

 

The AirSonea device turns a phone into a portable wheeze monitor when held against the windpipe near the base of the throat.

 

Sounds are transmitted via the smartphone to a cloud-based site to be analysed with iSonea's acoustic respiratory monitoring technology.

 

The wheeze rate is then downloaded to the phone.

It's a stunt of giving up her body for science, and kind of a cool punk fashion statement -- and a daunting amount of syncing and charging.
petabush's insight:

I am in agreement with Kalmar, that these devices need not only to offer data but also interact with the wearer by triggering the environment either in the lived space or on the body itself

Infographic: Are you ready for sensors in healthcare? | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it

From FitBit to Misfit, the market for wearable sensors is increasing dramatically - and not just for personal fitness and wellness.

 

New devices are being designed on an almost-weekly basis to help people manage chronic conditions, recover more quickly from injuries, analyze physical and environmental abnormalities that may lead to more serious health issues and detect unhealthy habits before they cause problems.

Are we inviting hypochondria or hopefully will use these sensors wisely?

Kel Mohror's comment, September 20, 2013 3:15 PM
Wearable sensor / body area nets are the best path to preventing chronic diseases. These nets incorporate activity tracking and estimating caloric burn during one's activities to guide us in warding-off gaining weight. Other apps enable more complete health data to be communicated to a provider for, in needed, more timely intervention to prevent hospital re-admissions or a health crisis.

13M wearables to be used in corporate wellness plans by 2018

13M wearables to be used in corporate wellness plans by 2018 | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it

Over the next five years, 13 million wearable devices embedded with wireless connectivity will be integrated into wellness plans offered by businesses, according to ABI research’s new report.

 

In 2013, principal analyst Jonathan Collins said less than 200,000 wearable devices have been integrated into wellness plans.

 

The report factors in the social and economic drivers supporting the integration of wearable wireless device adoption, such as the point at which people start taking more responsibility in healthcare, Collins told MobiHealthNews.

 

“While some device vendors are hoping that strong consumer awareness will drive corporate wellness adoption for their products, they also need to understand and focus on the most influential parts of the healthcare value chain,” Collins said.
